Life travel

I’ve stood here many mornings at the top of the hill where the sidewalk borders the lawn neat and trim til it runs to meet the house low and pale against early mornings’ still dark sky

The hill’s curvature fools the eye and for that moment you are reminded that you’re standing on this great terrestrial planet

Last night’s moon, our lone satellite slips closer to the horizon – two celestial bodies moving around and together

Early morning allows us the space to take note of all that is about us

And I walk on along the sidewalk to the woods and realize that on this morning it is my first trip around the sun without my father
